A gameport event is an InputEvent structure which describes the following:

   * The class of the event - always set to IECLASS_RAWMOUSE for the
     gameport device.

   * The subclass of the event - 0 for the left port; 1 for the right port.

   * The code - which button and its state.  (No report = 0xFF)

   * The qualifier - only button and relative mouse bits are set.

   * The position - either a data address or mouse position count.

   * The time stamp - delta time since last report, returned as frame
     count in tv_secs field.

   * The next event - pointer to next event.

    struct InputEvent GameEV
        struct InputEvent *ie_NextEvent;  /* next event */
        UBYTE    ie_Class;                /* input event class */
        UBYTE    ie_SubClass;             /* subclass of the class */
        UWORD    ie_Code;                 /* input event code */
        UWORD    ie_Qualifier;            /* event qualifiers in effect */
              WORD   ie_x;                /* x position for the event */
              WORD   ie_y;                /* y position for the event */
             }  ie_xy;
             APTR ie_addr;
           } ie_position;
        struct timeval ie_TimeStamp;      /* delta time since last report
